Dr. Oz has faced intense media and medical scrutiny these past few weeks for his unrelenting appraisal of unapproved dietary supplements. People are often unaware about dietary supplement regulation, forming outrageous opinions on efficacy and safety. As herbal medicine gains popularity not only for people trying to lose weight, but for people with allergies, the FDA still foresees regulatory guidelines, though some people think that most of these supplements are unregulated.
At The Allergy and Environmental Treatment Center, LLC, we understand that a lot of our patients rely on vitamin and mineral nutrients as part of their allergy management. Dr. Liszewski and the esteemed allergy team use state-of-the-art allergy testing and customized immunotherapies to get to the root of all allergy symptoms.
Dietary supplements often contain the ingredients that coincide with treating immune system problems. When the immune system is irritated, it triggers a body reaction often in the form of an allergy symptom such as hives and itchy skin.
To combat unregulated dietary supplements, the Dietary Supplement Health Education Act (DSHEA) has been passed along to congress as a way to protect Americans from harmful side effects and to place appropriate access regulations on common supplements. Regulated pharmaceutical industries have some dishonest companies that, for instance, form products containing illegal drugs and masquerade as weight-loss miracle. Under FDA regulation and DSHEA, these companies can be controlled, and dietary supplements can begin to build a reliable reputation.
At The Allergy and Environmental Treatment Center, LLC, we encourage patients to introduce approved nutrients into their diet to improve immune system function. Common nutrients that are beneficial for allergy management are vitamin E, magnesium, zinc, vitamin B6, vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin D. Talk to Dr. Liszewski or anyone at our Scottsdale facility to learn more about nutrients and minerals that could improve your allergy treatment.
